I discovered LUSH just recently! I've known they existed for many years I've just never lived close enough to one to stop in and check it out. I didn't want to pay high shipping costs online when there were etailers offering cheaper products and free shipping. I always look for the best deals and it just seemed like LUSH was overpriced. It was only recently that I went on vacation to Boulder and stopped in at that Lush store. I have to say I wasn't much impressed. The store was very cramped and busy. The smell was so jumbled and overwelming that I couldn't just sniff something and decide if I liked it or not since all I could smell was the whole STORE! I bought quite a bit anyways since I thought it would be my only trip to a LUSH store. The staff seemed overworked and didn't label some of my items and didn't offer or give me any samples. I also found out there was some promotion going on at the time that I wasn't told about. I left glad I'd killed the Lush Lemming and not expecting much from the products Needless to say when I got home to my big bathtub and tried out my new LUSH I fell in LOVE! I have used many different etailer bath products and while I liked a few most of them always left something to be desired. Normally I can try 10 products and only like and rebuy 1 or 2. Out of the first 10 products I tried from Lush I LOVED 5 of them Liked 3 and was MEH about 2. I have since found many more that I love and like and very few that I won't buy again. My husband agrees completely! We try to be frugal and Lush definitely isn't cheap but I think most os the products are worth the money. I like the minimal packaging and expecially like the reusuable tins. We are definitely LUSH converts!
This is my favorite bubble bar! It smells wonderful makes crazy huge bubbles and is the most cost effective out of all of the bubble bars I've used. I got 6 baths out of it and I could have easily gotten 8+ The scent lingers nicely and it is also my husbands favorite bubble bar (which always helps!) I will definitely buy this again!
YUM! YUM! YUM! Wow! this is one amazing soap! I got a wee sample from Lush and it lasted for a couple more days then I expected it to (compared to honey I washed the kids disappearing act!) This is one delicious soap both sniffed from the bar and on the skin! It is very mosturizing and I love the bits of dried fruit in it! This soap is another reason (along with Godiva and massage bars) why my dear husand fully supports my new found LUSH addiction!
This my Favorite Lush product EVER! In fact If I had to choose one bath and body product that I couldn't live without it would be Godiva Shampoo bar! My Husband completely agrees! He has thick luxerious hair down his back and usually has to use a handful of shampoo to get it lathered up. With Godiva he swipes it over the top of his wet hair a couple of times and it is Lather City! To be fair I had no idea this was a 2 in 1 and I always condition after because I have bleached hair. I'll have to try this on its own because one of my favorite things about this shampoo bar is that it leaves my hair so silky and I have to use a lot less (of my very pricey) conditioner. The Scent of Godiva is DIVINE and lingers long after my bath. It also makes my bathroom smell wonderful. The best part is how cheap it works out to be! I thought it was a bit pricey at first but we've been using it about 6-8 times a week for the last 6 weeks and there is still 2/3 left!
I was a bit disappointed with this bubble bar. Lushís bubble bars are my latest favorite bath product but this one just didnít live up to the hype. The scent is DIVINE! One of my favorite fragrances Lush has put outÖ.BUT when it is in the bath water that lovely scent pretty much disappears and turns plasticy. I donít get a lot of bubbles at all from this especially compared to others like the Comfortor. I wish I had thought to put it in a nylon because a lot of the problem was large heavy chunks falling to the bottom of the tub and just sitting there. Iím giving it 3 stars because it made my bathroom smell lovely, it turned the water a lovely color, it didnít make a mess and I think that the bubble potential was there if I had used a nylon. But I probably won't buy it again because the fragrance once in the bathtub was a letdown and there are other bubble bars that bubble up awesome without having to use a nylon.
THIS LOTION IS THE BOMB! Best moisturizer I have ever used. I have very dry skin so I need something like this but I'm not sure how this would be on oily skin. The only thing I can compare this to is the months I spent on the coast of Thailand and India. It was a bit humid and every morning I would wake up with a "Dew" on my face. It was my own natural oils finally coming out and repairing my dry aged face. It took 10 yrs. off my face and I never broke out. This stuff does the same thing. If I put it on before bed I wake up with a Dewy face. It is a bit oily but like natural oils not greasy and I have been using now for 3 weeks with no breakouts at all! In fact I usually have 1 or 2 pimple a week but I haven't had any and my crusty face is no more! I would definitely buy this again. It is pricey but as long as it doesn't mold or expire on me it will work out to be pretty inexpensive since a little goes a long way.
This is a great basic conditioner. I wish is was more moisturizing because I have very dry hair but I still really like it and I LOVE THE SMELL!!! This is one of my favorite scents ever! I actually think this is more effective as a styling cream. I work a small dollop in my hands and run through my hair when it is extra dry and it shines it up and smooths it down and the smell is a lot stronger this way! I would buy this again!
As much as I LOVE this soap I can only give it a 4 lippie because it is just too expensive for how quickly it is gone! I cut a bar in half and it only lasted 1 week! BUT it does smell heavenly! This is my favorite smelling soap ever ( and I have tried a lot). It doesn't dry my skin out at all and if it lasted longer it would be the perfect soap! I will buy this again but it will be saved for special baths and not everyday use.
I give this a 5 for how it works and what it does for my skin! It is a great gentle cleansing exfoliator. I like the smell but I think thats just because I prefer the smell of natural essential oils to the chemically perfumy smell of so many cleansers. My only real complaint is that is is kind of difficult to use and a bit messy. It is like a crumbly clay that you have to get wet in your hand before you apply it. It took some getting used to but I still love how works on my skin. Between this and and Dream cream I have completely fixed my super dry skin. It is definitely not a cheap cleanser but so worth it!
I would give this a 3 lippies on the product itself but I am deducting one more because of the tremendous disappointment I feel over this shirt. I was so bummed to learn I wouldn't be getting my ordered doll but I cheered myself up in the thought that at least I would be getting this tshirt. Then the tshirt arrived and once again I was disappointed considering the crappy quality of this shirt. Sure it looks good from a distance...nice bright colors and good graphics...but please! These must have been designed with the thougth that they were going to be collector items only because MAC can't seriously think these are wearable??? This is the roughest stiffest scratchiest fabric I have ever seen on a tshirt and the sizing is horrible!!! I ordered a large because I expected some shrinkage after washing and I thought better big than too small. And while it fits me now it is almost too snug (especially in the arms!) I wear mostly medium shirts and some small and this fits me like a longer small. I would like to wash this to soften it up but then I'm stuck with a too small shirt and I'm afraid the image will peel or crack! I was looking forward to wearing this but I think its fate is to get put in plastic and put away in storage. BOOHOO!!!
Greens are my favorite and this is a beautiful green but it is definitely not original. It is very similar to golden olive pigment as mentioned below but I think with a touch less golden and quite a bit less pigmented. It goes on a lovely translucent color. It is a perfect color to use as a natural wash instead of the hardcore beaming color that Golden olive pigment is. And of course it is more convenient as a eyeshadow verses a pigment. But I give it 4 stars because I'm a lover of bold heavily pigmented colors and this just isn't that. I would not purchase again because I have other greens I prefer over this.
Wow! did I get a bad Whistle or something? I can't believe the good reviews on this! This is the worst eyeshadow I have used since I was a kid trying to scrape some kind of color out of my pink nickle store eyeshadow. This is why I gave up years ago on drugstore eyeshadows....oh so pretty in the pan but no matter which brush you use, no matter how much product you manage to get on the brush, no matter how many layers you apply, there is ZERO color payoff. I see nothing on my eye (I'm nc30) when I tried to apply wet it just hardened and ruin the surface of the eyeshadow. I have tried everything with this eyeshadow and nothing looks remotely good. If I hadn't received this directly from Mac I would think is was fake. It is definitely going back. (BTW just for comparison, I really like springtime skipper and LOVE mothbrown!)
I also bought this because of the reviews and the brush. Lash discovery's formula is not my favorite but I use it a lot because of the awesome brush. So I was really happy to find this supposedly superior formula. I'm sure I just got a bad batch or old stock from sephora but what ever the reason this stuff did zilch! Nothing! I could barely tell I had on mascara! It came out of the tube really dry and even after layering it on I still couldn't tell I had mascara on. I bought this online and I don't have a sephora nearby to do quick exchanges and I'm not going to risk having to send this back again so I'm exchanging for something else and I guess I will check it out again instore when I'm in Vegas.
This is my favorite product from EDM!!! I got this in the first free sample kit I ordered and it was a generous amount filled to the rim. I use this as finishing powder all over my face. I am nc30/edm light-medium beige. This is one of those products that is barely noticable on me but really makes a difference. It lights up my face like no highlighter ever has including mac msf which I love. It looks very natural and is really beautiful in photographs! It is more glow than glitter and I have gotten more compliments on my face when I wear it than any other product. I will purchase this product for the life of EDM's!

I will be a lifetime customer to Everyday Minerals because of this deal! It is simply amazing! Great products all around! The site says one time only but if you pick the wrong colors or want to try new products she lets you order again! Pocket change in shipping for this kit but her regular prices are so good as well! I bought a full size eyeshadow with my free kit and shipping stayed the same...I cost me like $9.30 total!
